Texture, carbonate content and component composition of Mauritius beach sands, Indian Ocean
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1988)
Samples collected from beaches bordering the southern, southeastern, western and northwestern shores representing swell (windward) and non-swell (leeward) dominated environments of the island of Mauritius were studied in ...
Sediment-size distributions of the beach and nearshore environs along the central west coast of India: An analysis using EOF
(American Geophysical Union, 1986)
EOF analysis of the data on grain-size distributions of sediments in the phi -size class from the beach foreshore, backshore, dune, and nearshore environments of Colva and Calangute revealed that the first three phi ...
Morphology and grain-size characteristics of a log-spiral beach at Nagwa (Diu), west coast of India
Sediment samples collected along 6 beach profiles of a log-spiral shaped beach and nearby dunes have been studied for particle size distribution in relation to wave refraction patterns. The results reveal that the foreshore ...
Morphological Changes of the Beaches of Goa
Morphological variations of 2 of the major beaches of Goa have been found to be cyclic over a period of approximately 1 yr. These beaches attain their maximum sediment storage around April/May. They are then subjected to ...
Sediment Distribution in the Offshore Regions of Goa
Sediment samples collected from the offshore areas of some of the beaches (Calangute, Baina and Colva) along the coast of Goa, have been studied for their particle size and areal distributions. These areas are dominated ...
Studies on the Sediments of Vembanad Lake, Kerala State. 4. Distribution of Trace Elements
Distribution patterns of FE, Mn, Ti, Ni, Co and Cu in sediments of Vembanad Lake and adjoining river systems have revealed that (1) elemental concentrations follow closely the texture of the sediments, (2) river sands ...
Acoustic Masking due to Gases in Shallow Seismic profiling on the shelf off Bombay
Shallow seismic profiling on the inner shelf off Bombay indicates 25-35 m thick acoustically transparent clays covering the seabed. At depth of 22 to 30 m and 50 m the profiles and echograms are marked by turbidity resembling ...
